    Personally I would use Fel-Hardeneed > Golem > Valor. (At least until Heroism), Boots I would use Avoidance > Cannon Master > Valor. (Until Heroism).

    The set bonus is nice yes, but to me it makes little difference when Def/Stam is my top Prio on stats. (Block/Parry/Dodge is nice too)

    How would you rate Shalehusk Boots compared to Cannon Master or Valor?

  2. Speaking as someone who was a new player on Nostalrius (dinged 60 less than a month from closing) you are full of фекал if you think it's impossible to gear and take part in end game content.


    But nobody wants to play catchup unless they absolutely must, it's much more fun progressing through the content with other people. New players will definitely have a better experience on the fresh realm. Old nost players can keep playing on the old one, plus from what I've been told guilds are coming back in their entirety, so they're fine even with no new players at all.

  3. That's good to know. I'm hoping to see a lot of active people doing some lower level dungeons to level up. 




    Playing catch up, catchup, catch up is what I'm wanting to avoid. I want to enjoy leveling and meeting people, but I also want to be able to raid when I do hit max level. From what the other responses have been, I think I'll be just fine. I appreciate everyone's reassuring responses. 


    Well, if you really want to avoid playing catch up, then obviously the fresh realm is your best bet. The PvE one might not be a bad middle point though, not to mention it releases earlier.


    You do have to be very active in your search for a guild, however, depending on your class as well. There's still plenty of 60s who want to raid now, and perhaps aren't that willing to wait for level 1 players to level to 60. Not to mention all the new players you will be competing with for said raid spots.


    That said, if you prefer pve realms in general, there's not a whole lot of choice. I don't think it will be a bad choice regardless.

  4. Your statement seems a bit contradictory to me, do you find little enjoyment being in greens or you think it's not about the loot? Personally, I find farming MC, BRD, DM etc (for the 100th time) even less entertaining, and this is what happens when there are 10 people rolling for every single item. It's not about the loot, sure, but you need it to help your guild with the upcoming content or in pvp.   

    Which brings me to my next point. I do find wpvp (and pvp in general) extremely fun and entertaining. Just saying that first weeks (or possibly months) of Elysium will be horrible. Not fun at all, even if you LOVE pvp as much as I do. I'm quite confident that in contested zones you will spend more time running to your corpse than fighting back. Not fun at all, unless you have a different view on that.  


    What I meant was I find little enjoyment in being carried through the dungeons, even if you do get free loot since nobody else needs it. I like progressing through the content with other players, who need to do the same content as I do, whether it'd be levelling, 5-mans or raids. I enjoy vanilla as a whole, not just the latest raid.


    And I don't think levelling will be as bad as you think. I played on K2 when it had upwards of 8k players, all level 1-40, and wpvp didn't slow me down needlessly much. Instead I had many fun moments in various places, fighting both quest mobs and players in a party. You'd also be surprised how many players of opposing factions just completely ignore each other.

  5. It depends how much you are expecting to get out of them. Stuff like herbalism can be really lucrative, since everyone needs consumables. Some of the crafted gear is really gear is really good, like bloodvine come ZG patch and Hide of the wild from DM. 


    Plus, if you get a rare recipe early (not really applicable for the old servers, since there's a ton of people with every recipe) you can make a lot of money. You'll literally get strangers whispering to you since they heard you can make a rare item.

  6. FYP, mate :)

    I'm pretty sure leveling in the old realms will be tens times faster and getting tier gear from raids much easier when playing with guys who don't roll against you for every single epic that drops.  

    But hey, its all about the journey and dying is ok! Valar Morghulis, after all ;)


    But world pvp is fun? Getting killed by players of your own level is no big deal, since you can fight back.


    Also, running through content with other players who also need to do the exact same content is fun. I find little enjoyment being the green-geared guy, begging a guild to run you through strat live or MC. It's not all about the loot.

  7. I thought the whole Nost project was all about progression. That's what the game lacks nowadays. If you got a 60 you're attached to, keep playing that character sure, but there's definitely a lot of people who don't. There's more to vanilla than just AQ40/Naxx to me, and I feel like I'm not alone in that sentiment. People want to experience vanilla as a whole, including levelling/5-mans/raids. Not just rushing to 60 with a ton of BiS-geared players around you, hoping you can join a guild that can carry your green-geared попа through said content.

  8. You are aware this is a "relaunch" right?   Bringing the past back to now is the reason a majority of us dropped our K-1 AQ geared toons, K-2 BWL progression toons to come back.  The extra server should be considered a bonus to all these retail fanboys that have this illusion of a "level playing field".  News flash, MC will be cleared 1 month before you are 60.    You will always be behind somebody else in gear/rep/honor/gold.  


    Competitiveness?   The majority of the try-hard are playing on Nost - PVP.   I don't need to race you to 60 to have a competitive spirit and farm MC for 3 months +.   Stepping into an established guild and showing your worth and out performing others by a gear vs performance %, stealing their raid spot and getting loot thrown at you due to high performance vs others sounds a bit more competitive and rewarding.   Even with my alt I push tops of healing meters vs those who out gear me.  Not cry because I got blues vs their full epic and advocate people should lose their progress or belittle them for not starting over because I don't have the same things they do at the moment.


    You only post to advocate for the Elysium PVP server, you contribute nothing helpful or positive to these forums, and put down an entire player-base that made Nost what it is today.   It is because of the hard work of admins/devs/gms/forum contributors/players populating the game that you are here now.   Show some respect to that fact.


    Competitiveness..... ha.   


    It's not black and white. There's a big difference in just hitting level 60 when everyone else is BiS-geared, and being level 1 when everyone else is BiS-geared. There's a big difference in getting that healing enchant when there's 5 other people on the server who have it, and getting it when 100 people on the server have it. You might always be behind the top-tier players, but the question is how much you're behind, and how many players actually are ahead of you.


    Still, I don't get what the problem is. If you have a character you're attached to on the old servers, keep playing that character. If not, then roll on the fresh server. Problem solved?


    I don't even understand why you're interested in this. You're clearly in an established guild (and the best player in that guild, surely), why do you even care what some plebeian rerollers do?
